Cinco Family of the Month: Pendergraff Family

One of the best part of my job is meeting new families. When I met Andrea and John and their kids, it didn’t take long for me to see the fun-loving family they are – silly, real, down-to-earth, and just plain awesome people. All of them (yes, even the kids) are involved in our school, our community and genuinely care about our community. We are lucky to have them here in Katy!

I had a great time at the session – but don’t take my word for it. Here is mom Andrea’s perspective:

Please tell me about your session experience:
What an awesome experience. Love that Maureen took time ahead of time to figure out what we like in photo shoot. Photos are beautiful and even when posed, they look natural. Even the outtakes are precious to me because they captured a moment in time that was real and beautiful.

What did you like about your session? What was your favorite part?
It was just easy and we got so many beautiful photos!

Any funny stories or interesting happenings during your session?
Kids had fun drawing with chalk and some of our favorite photos are the ones where my littlest hooligan could show her silly side and her distaste for photo sessions.

What do you hope your kids/family will say years down the road when looking at these images?
I just hope they have memories of this stage in our lives. I often don’t want to be in photos because I am too self conscious. Photo shoots allow me to look and feel pretty enough to keep and share the photos, which I hope my kids will treasure in the years to come

Any advice to other families before their photo session?
Fill out the questionnaire ahead of time to give a feel for what you want/expect. Then let her work her magic.

LOVE, love love feedback! Thanks Andrea, John and kids! To see my favorite photo from the session, go HERE.
